Yesterday I wanted to restore the image of the full backup (not incremental) of my HD that was stored on an external USB HD (Maxtor 120G). This external hd is recognized by my XP box at all times and the imade save can be seen on any XP machine. When I wanted to restore from Windows ATI asked me to either close all open files or reboot. I chose reboot, and after clicking through everything it ONLY gave me the choice to select my source from within the local computer and its 2 CD and cDVD drives and "Computers near me". I was not able to select my external HD as it was not given to me as a choice. Have I done anything wrong? Any help will be gratefully appreciated.
